Offered in Silver and Gold. Thinnest and lightest minidisc player.

A few things to note:

  • It can only be charged using the supplied dock.
  • The headphone connector is unique. You must use the supplied remote (RM-MC35ELKU) or 3.5mm adapter. (Same as the Qualia 017 I wonder?)
  • It has an internal battery shut-off switch on the exterior of the device.
  • Internal rechargeable battery is removable/replaceable with just a driver. No full teardown is required.

According to one user on: https://ikura.5ch.net/test/read.cgi/wm/1146380276/

“The very thin playback-only MD E10, which is famous for charging troubles, has a low current tolerance of the control circuit packaged in the battery, and it breaks down due to a slight increase in charging current due to battery deterioration, and can output the correct voltage to the T terminal. When the battery is exhausted, the state of the battery cannot be fed back and the battery cannot be fully charged. Therefore, even if the charge was poor, it could still be used by transplanting the control circuit.”
